SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encrypted info between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH mainly because of the better level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other customers on that server will be affected. While SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

SSH access can be enabled with a click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud website hosting you have chosen includes this feature by default. If not, you can include it from the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it straightaway. You'll find all the details that you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you have to use, as well as comprehensive Help articles where we've listed the commands you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax which you have use. The SSH password could be changed from the very same section anytime with several clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect securely using an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all of the files that you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and handle them via SSH. If the plan that you have picked comes with this function by default, you just have to enable the SSH access function through the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you are able to quickly include it through the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be available within a minute. We have numerous help articles and video tutorials regarding the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands which you can carry out alongside a number of examples to give you a better idea of what you can do. If SSH is active, you will also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely through any FTP app that supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server solutions which we offer come with SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a feature that you should enable. As soon as your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details you have entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email too. As your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations as to what you can or cannot do via SSH. You'll be able to download, install and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux web server, reboot the entire server or just a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you'll need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
